Sticky Thread Sticky: New to Keto? - Look Here First *Frequently Asked Questions*

One of the most frequently asked questions is regarding ketostix. Many people ask if they are still in ketosis if the stick is only showing trace amounts of ketones. My response to this question would be that you are either in ketosis or you are not. If you are only showing trace amounts that could...

Sticky Thread Sticky: A Guide to Ketosis

I first heard about keto from this board 3 or 4 years ago, so this is where it all started for me. I've had fantastic results on keto, and I really believe in the validity of this diet - not only in terms of fat-loss, but also in terms of health-gain. There is a lot of understandable skepticism and...

where does the 30 grams or less come from

Most people I know doing keto are on 30 grams or less. Why 30? At what point does a body stop ketosis as far as grams of carbs? I'm interested in the science is all. No problem staying at 20~30 grams so far.

Minimum amount of protein to prevent catabolization

Is there such a minimum amount of protein we should eat in order not to lose any muscle? I need to cut 10lbs and I can't exercise much due to a wrist injury, so my options are limited. Still I want to lose fat while in keto but as I'm not training and I have a sedentary job my maintenance...

sleep on keto

Alright, proper keto for 4 days. Last 2 days I wake up after 3 or 4 hours, still tired and need to wash my face or do something before attempting to go back to sleep. When I do go back to sleep it's a GOOD sleep, but I'm sure this is a bad pattern. Last week when I went low it was similar. Then...

Does 150g carbs a day warrant a refeed?

i'm cutting on 150g carbs a day, 160g protein, 70g fat = 1900 calories. Is this fine to sustain 7 days a week? or should I throw in a carb-refeed once a week?
